OTP’s (or Operations Technology Professionals) are trained engineers who work directly for McDonalds franchisees and supplement them by providing restaurant level technical expertise needed to deploy and support McDonalds cutting edge technologies. The OTP Program was founded nearly a decade ago to ensure the training, technical tools, and cross-franchisee relationships of the OTP’s are aligned with our overall business initiatives while still addressing one of the Global IT key pillars: Keep Systems Up and Running. While USIT strives for efficient technology performance of all systems, there are times when expectations are not met. The OTP program uses technical restaurant details to identify early deployment obstacles to new initiatives. Ultimately, they remove those obstacles by developing software/hardware solutions and prevent help desk calls impacting franchisee and customer experiences.
