Since version 4.3, there's a tool in TYPO3 called Scheduler. It's a 
system extension. You will need to call it as a cron, but once it is 
setup you can add your own taks to the Scheduler itself, without having 
to setup additional cron jobs and manage the frequencies from the 
provided BE module.

The Scheduler comes with a complete manual and some example tasks, so it 
shouldn't be too hard to develop your own tasks.
