Cron jobs are run at the server operating system level (or your remote Koha
server) so I recommend you talk to ByWater.

I'm not sure how much access ByWater gives you to the command line but I'm
sure they will set them up for you and also give you a lesson on how to use
cronjobs (one way or another!)
