Software to control the use of public microcomputers

For libraries that offer public microcomputers it is very useful to adopt some tool to control access and usage time, especially when there is a lot of concurrence / queues.
In addition, these kind of tools allow for libraries knowing who uses each microcomputer (by logging each use) inhibiting also the misuse (unauthorized access, crimes and cybercrimes, etc).
This table shows some software options on the market that allow this type of control:
