Baramundi Management Suite
While overall it's a functional mobile device management system with the bonus of providing desktop management features for both PCs and Macs, the Baramundi Management Suite provides mostly basic capabilities and is missing some key features found in more expensive competitors.



Square Payroll
Square Payroll checks all the basic boxes for paying your staff, while offering an exceptional user experience. But this nascent service lacks the depth and customizability of its competitors, and it's not available in all states.



Work Examiner
Work Examiner is no-nonsense employee monitoring software that's not lacking in any core data sources and tools. It has enough automation and customization ability to get the job done for on-premises oversight.



DeskTime Pro
DeskTime Pro is an affordable, easy-to-use combination of time and project tracking plus productivity-focused application monitoring. The functionality and reporting is barebones compared to other tools, but it's a solid tool with plenty of customization ability.



StaffCop Enterprise
Once you get StaffCop Enterprise set up, it's among the most powerful employee monitoring software solutions available, packing a full range of data gathering, user tracking, and reporting tools. If not for its on-premises setup process, it would rival Teramind as a best-in-class tool.



ActivTrak
ActivTrak is affordable, easy-to-use employee monitoring software that steers clear of omniscient oversight in favor of employee productivity metrics and team behavior analytics. It's Google Analytics for your office.



Salesfusion
Salesfusion is a feature-filled marketing automation tool that includes a wide variety of tools for lead generation. It is not intuitive and will require training. The lack of a trial version means you will have to do a lot of research before committing to it. But if you're a mid-level company that wants to automate its marketing, this could be the place to go.



Really Simple Systems
Really Simple Systems is an excellent CRM for small to midsize businesses (SMBs) that need an understandable user interface and strong support. However, its lead management features are a bit limited.



InterGuard
InterGuard is an extremely customizable employee monitoring tool with a wide range of data sources and monitoring tools plus a selection of add-on modules. Though its user interface leaves much to be desired, the tool boasts strong keyword tracking and intuitive wizard-based experiences for building automated notifications and reports.
