Cunliffe will remain with the listed football and horse racing pools operator until the announcement of preliminary results on 6 March, or the date upon which a successor is appointed.
Ian Penrose, chief executive, said, "I would like to thank Steve for his contribution to the group since 2006. He leaves Sportech in a stronger financial position than when he joined."
Odgers Berndtson, the executive search consultants, has been appointed to recruit a replacement finance director.
Sportech shares rose 0.5p in morning trading on the London Stock Exchange, to 64.5p.
