Despite the impact of the price of oil, which caused a considerable decline in our consulting services income, revenue for the nine months ending July 31, 2015 was $1,463,690, an increase of 3.2% over the previous year. The sharp declines in our consulting revenues were offset by increases in revenue from our Spanish operations and our Technology Licensing. The company has been transitioning its software focus from Status Machine Edition to Status Enterprise and our IoT Platform. Commercial Software Sales were up 15% compared to the same quarter last year, Status Enterprise and IoT Platform software sales now make up the largest share of commercial software revenues. Commercial Software revenue for Q3 2015 was the best quarterly result in the past 8 quarters. We expect this trend to continue with commercial software sales increasing in 2016 due to demand growth in Status Enterprise, our IoT Platform and increases in recurring support which have started to influence revenue.
Our IoT Platform launched this spring has produced some initial customer wins including an enterprise IT management solution for one of Taiwan's leading telecommunications companies, commercial office space monitoring in Africa, and solar panels in Singapore. Status Enterprise has also had customer wins including a deployment in South America for one of the world's largest copper producers. United States deployments include monitoring irrigation systems at a public University campus and multiple deployments for commercial boilers and aqua culture. B-Scada has also established relationships with a leading hardware provider who will start bundling our software with their hardware in Q4 2015.
Our plans for 2014-2015 included establishing our IoT Platform, increasing our European presence with the opening of our subsidiary in Spain, and expanding the languages the company operates in from English only to English, Spanish and Portuguese. The opening of our Spanish branch has been a success.
Plans for 2015-2016 will be growth focused, establishing Monitor Sensing Technologies Inc. (MST) our sensor technology arm which focuses on providing low cost sensors for the residential and light commercial market. Our Status Enterprise and IoT Platform will be enhanced to include connectivity to MST sensors and basic maintenance management capabilities. This new functionality - along with our existing monitoring, notification and workflow - will result in a true predictive maintenance solution for SCADA and IoT.
As a whole, these efforts will position B-Scada as a global 'go to' company for monitoring of live data. From monitoring a hotel room or simple commercial boiler to controlling an assembly line or monitoring key point indicators for a group of power plants, B-Scada can provide end to end solutions including local or cloud based software, sensors, consulting and professional services.
