About AAH, Part of Hallo Healthcare

AAH, part of the Hallo Healthcare Group, is the UK’s leading distributor of pharmaceutical and healthcare products. Serving pharmacies, hospitals, and dispensing doctors nationwide, AAH delivers pharmaceuticals to 14,000 pharmacies and other healthcare organizations from 14 modern distribution centers.



Challenged to keep pace with the ever-changing regulatory landscape, AAH wanted to move their IT estate to the cloud, so they turned to the Actian Data Platform to help them modernize their infrastructure and provide the scale and agility required to adapt to emerging market trends.



Having built its existing systems on the Ingres database, AAH wanted a way to modernize its infrastructure without disrupting its logistics business. The Actian Data Platform will allow them to move to the cloud in a fraction of the time and cost.



Leveraging the IngresNEXT migration path, AAH is well positioned to take a phased approach to their migration to Google Cloud.

I think it’s fair to say that the system we operate on, because it is stable and maintained for so long, is reliable and works consistently and supports the business in its daily operations.

with Actian

"Actian and our BI tools integrate seamlessly and deliver real-time insights with great speed and performance. We’re able to make informed, risk-balanced decisions very quickly."

"We have been able to save a huge amount of time spent pulling data and manually reconciling data when we find errors or discrepancies. We are now able to actually spend time analyzing areas to move the business forward."

"We had multiple workflows and management routines that were built over years to run Vector on-premises. The migration was completely invisible to our end users, and that was exactly what we hoped."
