Can I run the software on a tablet computer in the shop?

Sure. Provided the tablet is running Microsoft Windows 64-bit operating system and is powered by an Intel or AMD processor. Keep in mind that the user interface is more oriented towards a desktop computer with a traditional mouse and keyboard so it may be little clunky to use via a touch screen but it can be done. In fact we've tested on a tablet in our computer lab to make sure it does indeed work.
