Are these exciting small cap ASX tech shares the next Afterpay?

I think that having a little exposure to the small cap side of the market can be a good thing for a portfolio.

After all, if you unearth the next Afterpay Ltd (ASX: APT) when it is just starting out, you could generate significant returns.

With that in mind, I have picked out three small cap ASX tech shares which I think could be worth a closer look. They are as follows:

Audinate Group Limited (ASX: AD8)

Audinate is a digital audio-visual networking technologies provider. It was growing at a rapid rate prior to the pandemic thanks to the significant expansion of its Dante product offering and the increased adoption by Original Equipment Manufacturers. While the pandemic will put a dampener on its growth, given the benefits it offers end users, I expect demand to pick up once the crisis passes. In addition to this, the company has recently expanded its offering into the audio-video category and could soon revolutionise this market.

ELMO Software Ltd (ASX: ELO)

ELMO Software is a provider of cloud-based human resources and payroll software. Its increasingly popular unified platform allows users to streamline processes for everything from employee administration, recruitment, and payroll. It has been growing very strongly in the ANZ market and delivered a 42.8% increase in annualised recurring revenue (ARR) to $52 million during the first half. The good news is that the company has still only captured a small slice of the local market. I believe this provides it with a long runway for growth. In addition to this, as its platform is jurisdiction agnostic, I believe an international expansion is a real possibility in the future.

Serko Ltd (ASX: SKO)

Serko is a technology company with a focus on developing innovative solutions to address the challenges of corporate travel and expense management. It is a market leader in its category and has over 6,000 corporations and travel management companies using its platform. While Serko’s business has been negatively impacted by the pandemic, it is well-funded and appears to be positioned for a return to growth when travel markets normalise.
