I am switching from Aperture and certain features are very valuable. When I export images there are certain tasks that I assign to files based on need. In aperture, I assign a color tag and my staff knows exactly what to do. In Lightroom, I must export and then go to the finder to re-assign my colors.

Color labels have 'names' set in the Metadata menu > Color Label set. Check that the names match those in Aperture.
