Why do you not want to use a timer?

I assume you understand that you can use the WakeTimer functionality to wake/process a timer event on demand that way you do not n not need to rely on a schedule...

If It involves your database, you could use an SQL agent and run it via Scheduled tasks.

You can also use BPT to run a process in the background, triggered by certain events like a Create or Update of a record.
