Are Inventory Management and Warehouse Management the same?

Most businesses consider these two terms the same, but they are a bit different from one another. Inventory management's basic functionality is managing goods and their different operations while maintaining all necessary documents. Without a large storage facility and fewer goods, the different processes will fall under inventory management only.

Whereas, with a big warehouse and complex inventory management with the inclusion of various bins to store and locate multiple goods, this will be considered warehouse management. Also, it will require scanners and other technologies to locate goods without any hassle.
