Other than ZFC, what other axiomatic systems are useful?

    Other than ZFC, what other axiomatic systems have been shown to be useful to the real world?

    I'm a layman that is reading through the Wikipedia articles and it seems like the axioms are becoming more Philosophy than Math. We can use a different axiomatic system other than ZFC, but are there any that are actually useful?
