You mean beyond GBP I assume? To some degree it will vary by vertical (e.g., home services vs. legal vs. real estate vs. restaurants). But generally I would say these below and some probably aren't necessary. For major horizontal directories it's really Google, Yelp, Apple and maybe Facebook.

But once you get into verticals there are more, depending ... You should also do keyword research and see who's showing up for your clients' category (non-branded) queries.

Maybe these:

Facebook
Data Axle
Foursquare
Bing Places
Yelp

Yellowpages
Apple Maps
Nextdoor
(probably not that helpful for SEO but for some direct inquiries)
Thumbtack (home services)
Yahoo! Local (legacy usage)
Angieslist (some direct usage)...
